6 police officers shot in 3 US cities Friday night, 1 dead and 1 in 'grave critical condition'

Quote
Six law enforcement officers on Friday night were shot -- 1 is confirmed dead -- in three different U.S. cities, their respective agencies have confirmed.

In central Florida, two Kissimmee Police Department officers were shot, chief Jeffrey O'Dell said at a press conference early Saturday morning.

Officer Matthew Baxter, a three-year veteran, died. The other officer, 10-year veteran Sgt. Sam Howard, is in "grave critical condition and the prognosis does not look good," O'Dell said.

It sounds like a high powered rifle was used in the PA assault which injured two Troopers.....that sounds like a sniper, ambush. The last ones to use such tactics were BLM in Dallas.

I wonder which leftist group is responsible?

Second Kissimmee (Florida) Police Officer dies after Friday night shooting (and perp caught)

Quote
A second Kissimmee Police officer has died after a Friday night attack on law enforcement.

Sgt. Richard “Sam” Howard died Saturday from gunshot wounds he suffered when he and fellow officer Matthew Baxter were shot during a routine stop in the McLaren Circle area, according to a department spokeswoman.

Baxter died Friday night shortly after the shooting.

Kissimmee Police Chief Jeff O’Dell said the officers were investigating three suspicious people about 9:30 p.m. near Palmway and Cypress streets when a “scuffle” broke out. That’s when police say Marine veteran Everett Glenn Miller, 45, shot the officers.

The officers — who were wearing body armor underneath their uniforms — did not have a chance to return fire. O’Dell said “it looked like they were surprised” by the gunfire.

Miller fled to Roscoe’s Bar at 2344 N. Orange Blossom Trail, where Osceola County Sheriff’s Office detectives found him about 11:30 p.m. When the officers approached him, Miller reached for his waistband — but a fast-acting deputy tackled him to the ground and arrested him, O’Dell said.

“Extremely brave and heroic actions by the deputy, there were other pople in the vicinity,” O’Dell said. “They went hands-on, tackled him to the ground and secured him [and] located a a 9mm and .22 revolver on his person.

Let see how the DOJ works this problem.  There should be some lawsuit over the stand-down order and pushing the two groups tougher.
